The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme Visual Arts course encourages students to challenge their own creative and cultural expectations and boundaries. It is a thought-provoking course in which students develop analytical skills in problem-solving and divergent thinking, while working towards technical proficiency and confidence as art-makers.
In addition to exploring and comparing Visual Arts from different perspectives and in different contexts, students are expected to engage in, experiment with and critically reflect upon a wide range of contemporary practices and media.
The course is designed for students who want to go on to study Visual Arts in higher education as well as for those who are seeking lifelong enrichments through Visual Arts.
The Visual Arts course at Queensland Academies Creative Industries is extended and enhanced by students’ participation in:
lectures, talks and workshops by teaching staff and local and international artists
learning journeys to galleries and art libraries
exhibiting as artists in regional and state exhibitions.
